Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag tells the story of Edward Kenway, a young British man with a thirst for danger and adventure, who falls from privateering for the Royal Navy into piracy as the war between the major Empires comes to an end. Edward is a fierce pirate and seasoned fighter who soon finds himself embroiled in the ancient war between Assassins and Templars. Set at the dawn of the 18th Century, the game features some of the most infamous pirates in history, such as Blackbeard and Charles Vane, and takes players on a journey throughout the West Indies during a turbulent and violent period of time later to become known as the Golden Age of Pirates.
To take you deeper into the true History behind Assassin’s Creed IV, we’ve also launched “Under the Black Flag,” a Historical crash course on the Golden Age of Pirates hosted entirely on Tumblr. Check back each week this month for a new chapter in the True Story of the Golden Age of Pirates.
